Vicky CookeWe hope you're enjoying the season and taking some vacation time to relax.

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition understands, however, that there are many women who may find it difficult to enjoy the summer due to their battle with breast cancer.

Our summer newsletter will arrive in your mailbox soon and focuses on the fact that Breast Cancer Doesn't Take a Vacation. In this edition, you'll get summertime health tips from "Ask the Doctor," learn about swimwear issues that survivors face, hear about some of our wonderful partnerships that have helped to raise money for DBCC, and more.

This note is to give you a quick preview of two events, in particular, that you'll be reading and hearing more about in the days and weeks to come -- the Northern Lights of Life event, and Tanger Outlets' PinkSTYLE Card campaign. 

As always, we're grateful for your continued support of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition in our mission. We hope you'll look for "Upcoming Events" in our newsletter for more ways you can take action to defeat breast cancer.
Enjoy the rest of your summer. We'll see you soon!

Northern Lights of Life
, Delaware's premier breast cancer fundraising event in New Castle County, will be held on Saturday, September 12 in the beautiful setting of Longwood Gardens. Please plan now to join us for an evening of celebration, live and silent auctions, gourmet food stations, entertainment and beautiful fashions modeled by breast cancer survivors. 
This festive evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with time to stroll through the conservatory, enjoy refreshing cocktails and delicious food, and bid on great items in our Silent Auction. Later in the evening, participate in the exciting Live Auction and "oohh and aahh" over the beautiful models (and fashions!) on the runway. A raffle of a wide array of electronic products (and pink ribbon ducks!) will capture your attention, too, and the finale of delicious desserts will be irresistible!
Sponsorships, tables of eight (8) and individual reservations are available for purchase.  Please visit DBCC's website at or contact Susan Adams today at to make your reservations for Northern Lights of Life at Longwood on Saturday, September 12!

Please remember that each sponsor, each individual contribution, each corporate and merchant donation, each winning bid, each raffle "duck" purchased, and every committed volunteer helps to support DBCC in its programs and efforts to help defeat breast cancer.
We look forward to seeing you at Northern Lights of Life at Longwood.

Tanger Outlets' 16th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign - or the PinkSTYLE Card campaign -- begins September 21 and runs through October 20, 2009. During this time of year, Tanger Outlets asks its shoppers to "think pink" in the battle against breast cancer.  For a $1 donation, Tanger shoppers receive a special pink card that entitles them to a 25% discount on any item at participating Tanger Outlet stores in Rehoboth.  Proceeds from PinkSTYLE Card sales are donated to DBCC to fight breast cancer in Kent and Sussex Counties.

Last year Tanger's PinkSTYLE Card campaign raised $78,000 for DBCC! PinkSTYLE Cards are available throughout the Tanger Outlet Centers. Get yours. Saving 25% may help to save a life!
